The U.S. Department of Energy projects that by the end of 2015, about 25 states, concentrated on the East and West coasts, will have adopted the 2012 version of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). This latest version of the IECC heavily references ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010, a standard that includes several updates to requirements for mechanical, electrical, and lighting systems. The new standards for these systems will raise the bar, contributing significantly to energy savings, as compared to the 2007 90.1 standard.
